Related Items/Publications: The Quilting Queens of Minden met and bonded through their volunteer work at the Northwest Louisiana Hurricane Relief Center, in Minden, Louisiana, and after the center closed, center Director Chris Broussard got the idea to make quilts from the clothing items that were left that could not be distributed. The women began to meet weekly and made quilts to auction off to raise money for Katrina and Rita survivors. The quilt is special because it was signed by Hurricane Katrina evacuees, as well as relief workers.
